Carl Van Vechten, (June 17, 1880 – December 21, 1964) original, autographed print/'real photo post card' with inscription to Mrs. Sadie Mauriber, mother of Saul Mauriber.

Van Vechten, the celebrated American writer and photographer, was the literary executer of Gertrude Stein and a key figure of the Harlem Renaissance movement. He captured iconic images of all the key members in the worlds of Art, Theater, Music, and Literature. Van Vechten viewed his photography as a hobby; he never took commissions, he never sold photographs. He would grant permission to publish them, but had strict requirements to do so. He was a prominent fixture in 20th century photography collections with his work being included in such institutions as The Library of Congress, The Museum of The City of New York and The Smithsonian Institution.

This  vintage Van Vechten image, features the hand written inscription "Dear Mrs. Mauriber Thank you for your warm greetings! and warm greetings right back to you!" and unique printed post card graphics and cancelled postage on its verso. It is signed "Carlo V.V." and dated June 18, 1955. Embossed on its front side, bottom center is a "Photograph by Carl Van Vechten" original 'blind' stamp. The photograph measuring approximately 3.5 x 5.5 inches, printed on a thick weight matte stock, is in fine condition aside from some minor age wear and chipping to its bottom right corner.
